Use win zip and select password protect....although it is easy to delete password protected files. I would suggest that you have 2 copies and ensure one is hidden.

and as well as what GANDALF <|:-)> has said, you should also "write-proof" the floppy disk... Just move the tab located at the bottom-right of the floppy disk (looking at the back that is) so that there is a whole there instead of the whole filled by the tab... Simply move the tab back to edit the contents of the floppy disk...

Every simple, but very effective :)
